The Fender Player Telecaster puts a modern stamp on one of the most legendary guitars of all time. Loaded with dual Player Series Alnico V single-coil pickups for authentic Fender tone with an edge, the Player Tele features a fast-action maple neck with 22 medium jumbo frets on a 9.5" radius fretboard for effortless soloing and bending. The solid alder body provides a balanced tone with punchy lows and crisp highs. The Fender Player Telecaster—a workhorse guitar ready to handle any musical task you throw its way.

Player Series Pickups: Classic Tele Twang Electrified

The Fender Player Telecaster is loaded with a pair of Player Series Alnico V single-coil pickups for timeless Tele tone with ample output. The bridge pickup delivers the cutting twang Telecasters are known for, while the neck pickup provides warmth and depth for rhythm playing. A 3-way switch lets you select the bridge pickup alone, the neck pickup alone, or combine both pickups for the iconic Tele sound that shaped music.

Fast-Action Maple Neck: Modern Playability

The satin-finish maple neck on the Fender Player Telecaster features a comfortable Modern C profile and a 9.5" radius fretboard for fast, effortless playing. 22 medium jumbo frets provide ample space for wide bends and vibrato. The synthetic bone nut enhances sustain and tuning stability. Combined with the six-saddle string-through-body bridge, the Player Tele offers exceptional intonation for razor-sharp tuning across all six strings.

Alder Body: Lightweight and Resonant

The Fender Player Telecaster is crafted with a solid alder body for a balanced tone with punchy lows, warm mids and crystalline highs. Alder is a lightweight, resonant wood that helps produce the distinctive Tele sound. The body is finished in gloss Tidepool for a stylish appearance under the stage lights.

Additional Features

Other features include chrome hardware, sealed tuning machines, 3-ply pickguard, and master volume and tone controls for dialing in your perfect sound. A four-bolt neck plate and Fender F-stamped branding mark this as an authentic Fender instrument, built to exacting standards.
